Series [v2] lockdown: kexec_file: prevent unsigned kernel image when KEXEC_SIG not enabled | expand

A kernel builder may not enable KEXEC_SIG and some architectures like
ppc64 simply don't have KEXEC_SIG. In these cases, unless both
IMA_ARCH_POLICY and secure boot also enabled, lockdown doesn't prevent
unsigned kernel image from being kexec'ed via the kexec_file_load
syscall whereas it could prevent one via the kexec_load syscall. Mandate
signature verification for those cases.
